Muse - Pinot noir Moorilla Vineyard 2013
Our renowned single vineyard Pinot noir, of the Moorilla vineyard, combines the elegance and power of a warm and dry vintage. Sunshine delivered rich hues and ripe tannins. With extended maturation in French oak, it has a stately power. For this wine, we hand pick individual rows as they ripen, make many different batches and eventually select the best to create layers of flavours and complexity. Led by a perfume of violets and roses, the core of ripe fruit is accompanied by exotic spice, French oak and fragrant tea. The palate is soft with compelling texture and weight. Intense flavours last. Plentiful tannins and firm acidity indicate long cellaring.
The most recent Muse Pinot Noir from 2013 is a moment of triumph for Moorilla. It’s a stunning wine and one of the best of the vintage.
